Background of Topic:
The magnitude of human trafficking and related forced labor practices are hard to assess because these crimes often go undocumented. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), victims of human trafficking suffer from physical, emotional and sexual abuse, and rarely have access to an education or to proper health care.
